Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Kaffeine: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200604-04)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 05, 2006
Bug(s): #127326
ID: 200604-04

Synopsis

Kaffeine is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Kaffeine is a graphical front-end for the xine-lib multimedia library.

Affected Packages

Package: media-video/kaffeine
Vulnerable: < 0.7.1-r2
Unaffected: >= 0.7.1-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Kaffeine uses an unchecked buffer when fetching remote RAM playlists via HTTP.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially-crafted RAM playlist resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Kaffeine users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/kaffeine-0.7.1-r2"
